look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: An aged looking ruby red that appears to have light carbonation, a single finger head presented but vanished quickly. No noticeable lacing has decent translucence. Looks almost flat.
S: Smells sweet and malty, there is a spiciness that looms in the nose that is somewhat subtle. Caramel sweetness is soft and a bit boozy with fruity esters that add complexity making its direct identity hard to discern. Nose reminds me of the inside of a chocolate covered Maraschino cherry.
T: Sweet syrupy cherry character that is slightly boozy and a little warming. Not pinpointing a strong hop/bitterness. Velvet cherry is forward but followed by a moderately bold, but pleasant almonds and apricots evocative of amaretto liqueur. A bit of bready chocolate malt, maybe even pumpernickel.
M: Mellow and smooth on the tongue with a medium body and very little noticeable carbonation. Warm on the tongue with a mildly roasty and toffee aftertaste that lingers but remains pleasant.
O: Not too much experience with doublebocks, kind of reminds me of Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Pretty sweet and warming, different from the styles I have been recently indulging. Tröegs seems like it has some quality offerings and I’m exited to explore further.
I plan on going on a bock/doublebock tare this spring, I will return to the Troegenator.

3.39/5 rDev -13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearence: clear brown, thick off shore head with nice retention.
Smell: refined yeast, a bit of sweetness. Not unpleasant but lacking.
Taste: some deep malt notes and a bit of hops and hints of fruit but the taste was heavily overpowered by alchohal.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, full body, not dry. Very filling.
Overall: for me the flavors were lacking, do that the most discernable tadte was alchohal, which isnt too pleasant, I cant see myself buying this again and I had higher hopes from this brewery.
Serving type: can
